    I bought this for my boyfriend who just got a charcoal grill this spring. After using lighter fluid and getting very irritated I decided to buy him this. THIS IS AMAZING!!! it lights all the charcoal in under 10 mins. The speed of this is absolutlely amazing. The handle stays cool and it is very rash to pour and move where you need the charcoal. Couldn't ask for anything better.

  • Charcoal starter.... GREAT
    Verified Purchase

    If you use charcoal for camping or grilling, this is a MUST.... so easy to use, and all you need is your charcoal and a sheet of newspaper to start the coals. It's heavy duty too, which will make it last for years. Would recommend this to everyone....5 stars

  • Very positive
    Verified Purchase

    This thing is a blessing for busy folks who love to use charcoal but don't have the time. I can never BBQ without one again!

  • Haven't tried
    Verified Purchase

    I got this for BBQ at the lake, but due to extremely hot temperatures lately. I haven't had a chance to go out there to try it out. It appears to be very well built, and sturdy. I got this order as scheduled.

    Verified Purchase

    It's a bbq chimney. It's metal. You put newspaper under it and charcoal in it and then you light the newspaper on fire. Within minutes you have a raging coal fire. It works.
